The laying aside of the swaddling clothes of a
territorial existence and summing the habiliments
of a state is a period worthy of definite registra
tion in history. It is an event that should be re
membered at all proper intervals 'ever Rafter..- Ne
braska came to the inheritance of statehood and
was the first to enter the Union soon after the close
of the Civil War. She was fortunate in that tens
of thousands of the young men who liad 'rendered
service to the government in the capacity , of sol
diers during the war and were inured to the fatigue
on the field, came to this territory 0prepared to
undergo the hardship incident to the life of a pioneer.
With them came thousands of others from the
several states and from homes across,, the, sea, all
for the purpose of establishing and reclaiming the
soil from a state of nature and making it respond
to the demands of civilization. & ifi.,n
'These hardy sons of toil, unwilling" to longer re
. s r
main in the relation of dependents on the general
government and preferring to take upon themselves
the obligation of a free and independent state,
- r-a;." ".
asked for and received admission to tfce Union on
...... , - - - . - v- - j
the first day of March, 1867, adopting: ac a :motto
' Equality before the law," and engraVing the
same on the Great Seal of the state. -10 r ;
Two score and five years have passed, since by
the will of the people and the authority of law, we
became an independent factor in the .galaxy of
. ' .scii m
, . . i labiOvi .
states that constitute the strongest and the freest
republic on earth. Such has been our, progress
that we stand second to none in point of general
intelligence, - and the peer of any in agricultural
and other industrial achievements wherein the soil
is the principal factor.---' - .
In view of these facts and in order that our peo
ple may be reminded of the near approach of our
forty-fifth anniversary, I have thought it wise, as
chief executive of the state, to suggest that as citi
zens of the commonwealth, we in some manner
observe this occasion; for example, that the schools
take up the subject and ask one or more of each
school to prepare and read a paper involving the
growth of the state in population, churches, schools,
railroads, number of farms and amount produced,
instituting comparisons between certain dates as to
numbers and values. As instance the fact that up
to the 10th day of July, 1865, there was not one
rail of railroad iron laid in Nebraska.. Now we
have 6,135 miles of direct line in the state. In 1867
only 48,800 people, now 1,19214.
On March 1st next, write a letter to some one or
more of your friends in other 'states, telling them
something of what you know of the state's develop
ment. Thus, in this modest way, we can observe
the day and help spread important facts touching
the resources and progress of our beloved state.

A WELCOME ARRIVAL.
Ed. H. Clinton who has been con
nected with the Armstrong-McClenna-han
Clothing Co. of Cedar Rapids, la.,,
for a number of years, arived in Lin
coln last week to take a responsible
position with the Armstrong Clothing
Co. The press of Cedar Rapids is a ;
unit in expressing regret over Mr.
Clinton's departure from that city,
and in recommending him to .Lincoln
as a wideawake, progressive and cap-
able business man. In Cedar , Rapids ;
Mr. Clinton was . a prominent worker '
in the. Ad Club and Commercial Club,
and always depended upon to jump in J
and help push every good, thing along. '
Speaking of 'Mr. -. Clinton the Cedar j
Rapids Tribune says: "Without in
tent at flattery, the Tribune can most J
truthfully voice the opinion of every
business man and thousands of work
ing men with whom he is acquainted

THE WESTERN TRADER, :
when we say that Cedar Rapids is los
ing one of its brightest and most pro
gressive citizens when Ed. H. Clinton
leaves us next Thursday for Lincoln,
Neb. - Ed. Clinton has been for several
years one of the big brained and re
sponsible men behind the active man
agement of the Armstrohg-McClenna-han
store in this city. ' Recognizing
real merit, he was made a member ol
the firm last year, an interest which
he will still retain. But the needs of
the western' store made, it -imperative
that a 'capable man assume. a part of
the' management. Ed. Clinton ; was
found to be that man and while he
will prosper by the change Cedar Rap-'
ids as. a whole .and the booster, organ- ;
ization, in particular will,, be the real
losers.'; . '. - "
Mr. Clinton will ; be . warmly , wel
comed to Ad Club circles . in Lineolny,
arid as he comes with the right sorts,
of credentials behind him he , will be
put to work alongside other Ad Club'?
men who are doing things.
A GREAT FRATERNAL 0S9St.
On another page of this issue' ap
pears a detailed statement of the
year's history of. the Royal Highland
ers, one of the great fraternal organ
izations of the country, and one that
Nebraska should be proud of because
it is a Nebraska-born order. It was
founded by Nebraska men and main
tains its headquarters at Aurora, where
it has a splendid bunding. It long
since extended its business beyond, the
bounds of Nebraska and is now flouiv
-ishing in other states. It has all the '
good featur.es of oldey fraternal insur
ance orders, with many good features
that others do not possess. It is the
result of careful study on the part of
men who have had wide experience .in
fraternal insurance. , r 1
. The maintenance of such an institu
tion in a state or city means much.
It adds largely to the business of the
state, brings thousands of dollars to
the. state ' for investment, and adver-'
tises it throughout the length and
breadth of the land.
Thatv the Royal Highlanders is a
prosperous organization is conclusively
shown by its annual statement to the
auditor of public accounts. It shows
a steady and healthy growth in mem
bership and in finances. It has a right
to be proud of the men and women in
eluded in Its' membership, for they
represent the best brain and blood and
brawn of the central west. Its success
show's that its management, is in the
hands, o'f 'men at once enterprising and
conserVatrV, and thoroughly posted in
matters pertaining to fraternal insur
ance. We commend; the readers of'
Will Maupin's Weekly to the stafce
: ment of the Royal Highlanders, and
heartily recommend this organization
to all of them. . '
A GOOD BILL.
, Congressman Maguire has intro
duced a bill providing that the federal
government appropriate $100,000 for
a permanent building in each state
where , a state , fair or - exposition is
established 'and supported upon land
owned by, the state and under the con
trol of a board created by legislative
enactment. Twenty per eeht of the
space ht ' each-'of said buildiugei to- be
reserved to the "goverhmen't'foT its bwii
display. That J' is a good bill, and
it, should, be enacted . into law. In
foctf itlis.sogood, and' its purpose 'is
so wise and beneficent, that we great
ly fear it .will not receive proper con
sideration.. That is usually the fate of
. bills that; really mean something to the
: people. But Congressman Maguire is
something of a pusher, and he has
quietiy :Jnade a lot of friends among
the, members. This will tend to give
him considerable prestige and help him
get - the proper attention towards his
bill.. - ,
THEY CAME THEY SAW. :
.Last year a gentleman in Nebraska
received'1 word from some relatives in
the east that they expected to come to
Nebraska0! or a short visit,' if he would
advise them when was the best time
to .come...; These people lived near the
Atlantic coast, and knowing that they
had had no. opportunity to know of
the great resources of Nebraska, the
Lincoln man advised them, to come'
during the tune of the JNeorasaa state
fair, when they would have a chance
to 'see.fwhat Nebraska could do. , Fol
lowing -his advice they: came at the
time ' when, .the " state fair was in full
blast and the result was that they
were astonished when they beheld the
result of what Nebraska had done and
what it could - do. , (,These people went
back to the Old Bay State filled with
enthusiasm and, as; a result spread the
good seed which may bring results.
The point .which is sought to be made
by telling the above incident is that
so many Nebraska people can do good
work right along this same line if they
will make "the effort to bring visitors
to Nebraska' at a time when the best
1 results 5 can be obtained. This same
. . m . it 1-1 1. .
reorasKa man ionows up me vuui m
his relatives by sending them when-'
ever possible agricultural reports and
s other 'advertising' ' tending to keep
alive the seed sown' in the minds of
the visitors that' Nebraska is "one of
t the x greatest of the Western states.
This costs little and helps - a great
deal. . r -
